The right answer is - none of the above. It’s string quartet.
Or at least that’s my guess.
HIMYM | PROPERTY OF…
HIMYM 8x10 screencaps
SPOILER ALERT! MY THOUGHTS:
I believe there was some symbolism in everything in Barney’s apartment being Ted’s. Things that had been Ted’s had become Barney’s. Robin was also in Barney’s apartment during the episode. She, too, had been Ted’s first. And only after that Barney’s (and I do not mean like she was anyone’s possession, I am just using this word to illustrate what I mean) But unlike all the other things, which Barney had borrowed from Ted, and never returned, Robin is not one of those “things”. And Ted has/had to let her go, because she is not his. Whether we want to accept it or not, it’s quite clear that just like Barney’s heart has always belong to Robin since they met, Robin’s heart has also belonged to Barney for the longest time now. Sounds like a romantic clichee, yes. But it’s a TV comedy after all!
Also, nice touch on the continuity elements. Rose petals and candles… from 7x10 to 8x12
HIMYM | THE PLAYBOOK
The Playbook by Barney Stinson has certainly evolved since it was last seen.
SPOILER ALERT! MY THEORY ABOUT 8x11 & 8x12
When The Playbook was introduced in 5x08, Barney described it this way - “It’s kinda big. Surprisingly heavy. Kinda leathery. And it’s black.” And it was. But over time it has both grown in size, and also changed colour. Because in 8x10 it was bigger in size (cover size, and number of pages) and had brown leather covers.
Also, in 5x08 Marshall said that he has gone through the whole Playbook basically, and he had no idea of a play called “The Scuba diver , which turned out to be the very last play in the book at that time. But seems Barney has added some plays after that. Including the now FINAL PAGES and LAST PLAY’S ever - “The Robin” and “The I Hope She Says “YES”” Which are both part of his final, big challenge, and play to get Robin.
Most likely Barney (or/and the rest of the group) will convince Robin that Barney’s gonna propose to Patrice. That will make Robin to take action. If she ever wants to be with Barney. Because if she doesn’t she will lose him forever. So my theory is that Robin thinks Barney is actually serious with Patrice (even though Robin’s initial suspicion that it’s not real, is actually correct, and it’s all part of the big plan) and thinks he’s gonna propose to her. Which will make her realize she loves Barney, and wants him back. So she thinks she’s going to go and stop him from proposing to someone else. Which means she has to be ready to admit why she doesn’t want him to do that. (yes, this is over-used scenario in fiction, but…oh, well…) And that is how they get back together. She admit she loves him. He proposes to HER, not anyone else. And… somewhere down the road…is the wedding day.
Remember that time when Neil Patrick Harris, Cobie Smulders, and others posted pictures from Italy on their twitters? That was way back in April. Well, now we finally can see the pictures from the beautiful HIMYM: Barney & Robin (Neil & Cobie) in Italy photoshoot in the magazine. The new issue of the CBS Watch Magazine.
NPH-FAN community has the magazine scans (interview, and photos) on their page.
HIMYM | Details #1
HIMYM 8x01 Farhampton
I would really love to know what else is in the box. I hope one day we will learn about every item in the box of memories.
I can spot something Canadian - flag or something like that (white/red), a disciplinary warning paper, and some sort of a list or letter (on the yellow notepad)
Is that… It cannot be the letter to the International Olympic Canadian Department of Olympics, cause that had longer sentences. But I hope that letter is also there. Along with all the other important items. And I really hope Robin either did look at every item in the box, Or will look at every item in the box in the near future.
What’s in the box? What is in the box?
